What Is OU Campus?
OU Campus is a web content management system provided by OmniUpdate, and is used to manage more than 700 college and university websites.
Website editing is done with a web browser – meaning you can update your site from anywhere, anytime as long as you have an Internet connection. OU Campus is very easy to use; website maintainers don’t need to know HTML, and they don’t need any special software.
Web pages are created with templates, which are based on the main Stony Brook design concepts. OU Campus is flexible and modular, meaning that you can have sidebars, menus, rotating slideshows, Flickr galleries, RSS feeds and more.
OU Campus is run in a Software as a Service (SaaS) environment. With SaaS, OmniUpdate hosts the OU Campus application and Stony Brook hosts the production servers. When you create and save an Omni page, all that work is done on the OmniUpdate staging server. When you publish your page (or site), a copy is sent to the production server – and your site is live for the world to see.
